Doug Davis a bright spot at rainy Wrigley Field

Despite Cubs’ loss in rain-shortened game, Davis’ was good.

I thought Davis did a decent days work.

He threw strikes. He lasted five innings. He did what you expect from a fifth starter.

That’s more than James Russell could do…or should have been asked to do as a starter.

And while Davis appears to be a temporary god-send, wouldn’t it be nice to have Braden Looper and Carlos Silva still in the mix?

Davis barely has the stuff to make it any longer at this level. But he’s long been a pitcher, a crafty left-hander, an innings guy the Cubs desperately need.

Davis will never be the best arm in this rotation, but he’s surely the most important one, at least in the short-term.
